M: When I grow up, I am going to be a doctor - a REAL doctor - or a veterinarian. Or a cowgirl.

Later while at a small art gallery shopping for a Father's Day gift for J -

G: Excuse me, Mrs. Art Store Lady? What is this? (gesturing to a small found item-type sculpture of a bird)

In the same regard, our housecleaner (the same one who has cleaned every two weeks since January and whose name I have told him several times) is generally Mrs. Cleaner Lady or Mrs. Cleaner. So, there's some semblance of manners there, right? Using the word "missus" indicates respect - just not enough respect to actually ask someone their proper name...
